Decapitation is the fastest, most humane way to kill something, allowing the shock to fade from news memory rather quickly.

Kind of a case of killing it before it ever was anything to begin with, isn't it? I'm trying to remember this fanfare you mention and all I can think of is a message-of-the-day back then about something called SLim, and thinking "hey cool, maybe they're addressing the need to be connected while away from the main computer". Nope, they never even implemented such a thing. It wasn't an IM client like the name suggests. It wasn't even usable on any device unless you *already* had the full SL client installed on that machine. In other words, it totally missed about 90% of the use cases for a mini-client.

I've seen vague ideas about various people trying to deliver on a genuine mobile/work IM client for SL, have any of those ever come to fruition?

There is one app on itunes. It's buggy though. Crashed almost all the time for me. If they can get it to work - it's going to be really nice.

I can only reiterate that the easiest, most flawless way to achieve IM/chat without using the full SL viewer is - in fact - use a text only viewer.

My personal favourite is the Radegast viewer, other options are SLLiteChat and MetaBolt (the latter having some quite obnoxious pay-per-click advertising pushed into your face).
